Saturday's NHL Prediction

2010 NHL Picks and Predictions for Saturday December 18

BOSTON, MA (TheSpread) – The Washington Capitals look to build on their lead in the Southeast Division on Saturday when they take on the Boston Bruins. Here is a breakdown of my pick for the game.

Washington is 18-11-4 on the year with 99 goals scored and 94 goals allowed. The Capitals are just 6-7-1 on the road and have only won 3 of their last 10 games.

Boston is 16-10-4 on the year having scored 86 goals and allowed just 63. The Bruins are 7-5-3 at home and winners in 4 of their last 10.

Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given Boston betting odds of -130 for tonight’s game while Washington has been given odds of +120. The over/under for goals scored has been set at 5.5. Here is a look at the trends and my pick for tonight’s game.

Washington Capitals vs. Boston Bruins, 7PM ET (View Matchup)

The home team has won 11 of the last 16 meetings in this series while the Capitals are just 4-11-2 in their last 17 games in Boston. The two have combined to hit the under in 6 of the last 7 games played in Boston as well. Despite their strong potential to score, I like a pick of Boston in this game as their defense should be able to limit Washington at home.
